Raise Your Glass

When I first started receiving corrospondence from the various breast cancer support organisations, the first thing that went through my head was "Wow. That is a LOT of pink". Pretty much everything to do with breast cancer seems to be pink. I have never really liked or worn pink, and I wondered if I would be thrown out of the club.

However, a blog post http://youlookfab.com/2013/10/08/the-versatility-of-blush-pink/ by Angie at YouLookFab convinced me that maybe I had been too hasty in my dismissal of pink, and so here is my first foray into the world of blush.
I have not been nearly so daring with my colour matches as those the original post showcased, but I have to admit to enjoying the softness and femininity of this outfit. Short hair, strong features and no breasts can send a mixed gender message but I think this outfit is unambiguously girly.
This tops is of a light, thin fabric and does not provide a lot of volume over my chest. However, I feel it has a 1920's look about it, an era when straight figures with small breasts were considered very fashionable indeed, so I decided to channel the spirit of the times and embrace the flatness. It was quite a revelation to me to realise that I don't always have to dress to disguise my lack of breasts. For some styles, it can actually be an asset to be flat-chested. The 1920's may be my new favourite era!

Just don't ask me to do the Charleston. That can only end in tears.

  1. Sharon, the outfit is just so feminine and I love how fluid this looks. This is a definitely a style that works beautifully on your new figure.
